Are You OK With a Teacher Viewing Porn at a Middle School?

Are You OK With a Teacher Viewing Porn at a Middle School?

A 6th grader at a West Virginia middle school arrived early to his math class, and saw his teacher viewing pornography.

“I saw something no 13 year old should ever see in a school.” Jeffrey Province

So he went immediately to the East Bank Middle School Principal’s office to tell him what he saw on math teacher Thomas Yohn’s computer. Another student recorded the ensuing altercation:

The teacher came into the room and threw a fit at the boy.

“Next time you open your big, stinking mouth, pal, I will write you up and send you to the office for coming into my room without permission.”

“Is that clear?”

“What I watch as an adult is my choice.”

“You as a child wait in the hall until you’re invited into my room — is that clear?”

Then the threat:

“Now I’m telling you, you keep your big flap shut. Because I’m a grownup and I can watch what I want, and if you ever set foot into my room without permission again it’ll be the last time you step in my room — is that clear?”

School District fallout

Yohn accused Jeffrey of trying to blackmail him, which he denies. The school never told the mother, Carmelene Short, about the incident. She found out about it on social media.

“He is supposed to be safe at school and this should have never happened, at all. I don’t talk to my kid like that and he is not going to talk to my kid like that.” 

Naturally, Jeffrey is scared to go back to the school as long as Yohn is there because he’s afraid the teacher will do something to harm him.

The incident is being investigated by the school district, and Yohn is suspended pending the investigation.
